Quilt Life

No comments

One of the differences between sewing a quilt and sewing a garment is that quilting is NOT an instant gratification project. I'm not saying that making all clothing is quick, but I can pump out a knit t-shirt in a couple of hours and I have never made a quilt anywhere near that quickly. Elisabeth is hosting a quiltalong for the book she cowrote with Nichole, The Fussy Cut Sampler, and there have been several blocks that I have spent hours cutting and sewing. Yes, hours plural. No, not instant gratification. For sure, strangely satisfying though.

I think this is my favorite block so far. The fabric is all designed by Libs Elliott and I love her stuff!

What I'm trying to say is that I have been spending more time at my sewing machine and less time with my knitting needles. 50% of sewing time has been working on garments and 50% has been working on quilts. Productivity wise, when it comes to finished projects, my numbers have been down, but once I finish up some of the bigger projects in the next few months I feel like I will have something to "officially" show for it. In the meantime, here are some photos of my current quilt WIP for The Fussy Cut Sampler QAL!

These blocks are insane, colorful, mismatched, definitely not perfect, and SO fun to make. I'm learning a lot and having a blast. I hope all QALs are like this. I might be hooked.

Larry Bird loves guarding my blocks 😐. Anyway, happy Tuesday!
